Baroness Ekaterina Fyodorovna Kolyschkine de Hueck Doherty CM (August 15, 1896 – December 14, 1985), was a Russian-Canadian Catholic social worker and founder of the Madonna House Apostolate. A pioneer of social justice and a renowned national speaker, Doherty was also a prolific writer of hundreds of articles, best-selling author of dozens of books, and a dedicated wife and mother. Her cause for canonization as a saint is under consideration by the Catholic Church.

This soon-to-be canonized saint shares something of herself through her writing. She tells of her intense personal experience--her agonies and joys.

To be able to follow Catherine's life from the Russian Revolution was eye-opening. My first experience during the 1960's was with the hospitality house in Oregon. Then just knowing that a classmate had chosen to join with the movement and has worked with the group for 25 years made me want to read her story.
From the beginning,it was obvious that Catherine had a love for her God and a desire to serve not from a distance, but to become one with the people she helped.
The Madonna House she founded has served both lay people and clerical. Even though the central house is located in Canada, staff serve around the world.
If a person wants to identify with royalty, see that person suffer to obtain freedom and also know that the author is a mother, this account will appeal. All can understand why she has been recommended for sainthood. Love is what Catherine is about.
I did not know anything about Catherine before reading this book. I did know a little about Constantinople, the Russian Revolution, the World Wars, the Great Depression, Canada, New York, the Old West, and Vatican II, but I could not have guessed that all those things were united together in one person's life. Almost every chapter gave me some new perspective about that period of history.
The story in her own words of an authentic life centered in Christ and the Church for a whole lifetime. Her wisdom comes from the depths of her commitment and courage in living out the sacrifices and suffering of being Christ to others, her great intelligence and humanity. Definitely a book to be read and cherished by anyone who wants their Christian life to be the center of their existence in the world today.
Had been looking for this book for a while and was happy to discover it available, became part of my Catherine Doherty collection, her style conveys the richness of her spiritual tradition, a powerhouse person, arrived in excellent condition, pleased with delivery.
